Chimney at Sunset

Kodachrome Basin State Park, Utah - a chimney of rock, aka sand pipe. The park many such chimneys. They are believed to be solidified sediment that filled ancient springs or geyser left standing after the softer surrounding Entrada sandstone rock eroded away.

Be sure to visit Sky Watch Fridays!

Great capture Russ. I see a person looking left up into the sky in that chimney. Erosion is amazing. I haven't been to Kodachrome Basin, next summer for sure.
